Glenroy railway station is located on the Craigieburn line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the northern Melbourne suburb of Glenroy opening on 24 January 1887.[1]

The railway past the site of Glenroy station was opened in 1872 as part of the North East railway to Wodonga.[2]

A goods siding was provided in 1908, being extended in 1950 for the nearby flour mill. Hand gates protected the Glenroy Road level crossing until 1965 when boom barriers were provided.[2] The original station buildings were provided in 1886, being replaced by the present buildings in 1976.[3] The station was upgraded as a Premium station in 1999.[4]
